We all love mysteries. :o Consciousness is one of them. But how strong is our desire to crack the code? We still want to know and we won't stop there. Why do we crave knowledge and understanding if we are so quixotic about the unknown? We do we want satisfactory explanations so badly? Some people wi...
People interested in these conversations are hard to find. I struggle to understand those who don't have a modicum of interest in the wonders of life and the universe---they lack philosophical thought and existential curiosity. If you asked them what the greatest show on Earth is, they'd probably sa...
I feel you. 8-) You guys made some interesting points. It reminds me of why I like these deep discussions; there is a lot to think, explore and talk about. We definitely established that Marxism, although ideal, isn't congruous with humankind's present state. The Soviet Union certainly gave socialis...

I believe drugs are merely shortcuts to such altered states of consciousness. Lucid dreaming, I suspect, can be a gateway even to those highs achievable through the taking of toxic class A drugs. At the end of the day, the euphorias and the mental elevations are nothing but subjective effects of bra...
